6 PERFORMANCE STANDARDS Athletics performance standards are guidelines only. Their intent is to assist coaches in determining the proper events for athletes of varying abilities. Performance standards will not prevent an athlete from entering an event and will not disqualify an athlete during competition (with two exceptions, see below). RUNNING EVENTS In running events, if an athlete has a score lower than the minimum, he/she should consider moving up to the next level or to an event of greater distance. If an athlete has a score greater than the maximum, he/she should consider moving down to the next level or to an event of lesser distance. In field events, if an athlete has a score lower than the minimum, he/she should consider moving down to the next level or not competing in that event. If an athlete has a score greater than the maximum, he/she should consider moving up to the next level (i.e. from Softball Throw to Shot Put). Athletes not jumping farther than one (1) meter in the Running Long Jump CANNOT compete in this event. One (1) meter is the distance from the take-off board to the sand. Jumping less than one (1) meter runs the risk of injury. Due to time constraints, athletes must be able to finish the 800m Walk within 20 minutes. Athletes unable to do so will not be allowed to finish and will receive a participation ribbon.
